Villa Sentosa, Kampung MortenVilla Sentosa, Kampung Morten (30 December 2006)





Villa Sentosa (GPS: 2.20251, 102.25144) is a traditional Malay house in Kampung Morten, Malacca. It was built around 1920 by Othman Haji Muhammad Nor, one of the two men who initiated the building fund for establishing the village. It is today turned into a family museum by Othman's descendents. Abdul Rahim Hashim, a descendent, now manages the villa.

Villa Sentosa exhibits items that showcase the Malay traditional way of life in Malacca, offering visitors a glimpse of how life has been in the past eighty years since the village was extablished. One gets to see Malay wedding dais as well ad the deco of a Malay bridal chamber. The house is also stocked with antique furniture and other museum-quality artefacts.

At time of writing (Oct 2009), a monorail line is being constructed in front of Villa Sentosa. While it may bring more tourists to Kampung Morten, there is also a fear that the monorail will impact the safety of the villagers.
